Sundays in Bed With… #MyWeeklyWrapUp

We’re back with another Sundays in Bed With… meme! This meme dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed with, or which book you wish you had time to read today!

I’ll be spending the rest of my Sunday night in bed starting Violet Made of Thorns by Gina Chen. I’m buddy reading this with Leslie and I’m so excited to dive in cos I’ve also heard some pretty good things about it. Plus, look at this gorgeous cover! ๐Ÿ˜

What are you currently reading?

Woo, this week has seen me be completely MIA on the blog but also online in general. The third member of our trio came back from visiting her parents at the start of the week and flew off on Saturday so it was a really short but super sweet visit. These girls are my ‘ride or die’ besties and although we don’t always keep in constant contact, whenever we do connect it’s like no time at all has passed. We had lots of late nights talking, reminiscing about our wilder days at uni, talking about future plans, one of us starting a family, and of course, our next reunion that hopefully won’t take place 13 years down the line. This reunion was so, so good and my heart is absolutely full! ๐Ÿ’œ

To cap off a very hectic but fun-filled weekend, I got my first bookish tattoo today! It’s bigโ€”much bigger than I thought I’d go at firstโ€”but when the artist put the bigger stencil on me it was an instant click. I don’t have a picture of the finished ink yet and it’s covered up right now, but this one shows it about 15% done. I’m excited to share the finished one soon! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I’ve been completely MIA this week and I’m sorry I haven’t blog hopped or responded to comments yet. I’ll be getting around to it tomorrow when I finally get back to a normal routine! ๐Ÿ™‚

ICYMI, here’s what I posted on the blog this week:

I hope you’ve all had a good weekend and that you have a great week ahead! Take care of yourselves and of each other, friends ๐Ÿ–ค

        • Omg, I’m starting to get to the really good part and then I had to go to the gym this morning and now I’m at my friend’s studio and I have to apply for jobs. I’m going to read until 50% this arvo and then hopefully I’ll be a bit more caught up with you. Sorry, Leslie! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I am loving it though. I HAVE THOUGHTS!

    • It’s always the most amazing thing catching up with friends you haven’t seen in years and then feeling like we’re picking up where we left off. The best kinds of friendships for sure ๐Ÿ’œ And thank you, lovely! I’m obsessed with this tattoo ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜


  6. It sounds like you had a wonderful reunion and I love that friends and family are once again able to visit each other. I am a wuss and have no tattoos, but that one looks amazing. I hope you had a good week.
